Season 1 Episode 5
For episode five, we consider the possibilities of
robotics in healthcare with a closer look at how robots might help nurses and doctors. Host Pieter Abbeel chats with Andrea Thomaz, the co-founder and CEO of Diligent Robotics and adjunct professor at The University of Texas at Austin.
In our interview, Andrea talks about her research in bringing robots into everyday life and specifically, the hospital helper AI-robot she helped create; Moxi. Moxi helps frontline medical clinicians and care workers with routine tasks so they can be freed up to spend their time on the more complex parts of their jobs. Surprisingly, patients have even started to bond with Moxi as well!
